Hey all, I bought the electronics kit with my MPCNC, which included the ramps board and LCD/controller board.
There’s an emergency stop button (the little electronics mini button style) on the LCD board. And once I’ve pressed that to kill the program, Repetier throws an error an requires the thing to be reset. Luckily, there is another little mini button on the Ramps board, to reset everything.
My question is if there are pins exposed anywhere to hook bigger, external buttons to accomplish those same tasks? I’m building up a control panel, and I’d like for the E-Stop especially, to be something easily reachable and activateable.
I’ve done a bunch of searches, but all of the threads I’ve found have been arguments about doing it via software, or just putting a switch in line to kill the power. I can do the latter if needed, but it seems like the built in e-stop is a bit more elegant.
